This chapter examines economic and institutional factors affecting entrepreneurial activities. Factors analyzed include entrepreneurial opportunities, skills, access to capitals, incentives, culture as well as overall macro-economic environment and institutional contexts. The focus is thus on the demand- as well as supply side perspectives of entrepreneurship. We also discuss examples of measures taken by various governmental and non-governmental agencies to change some of the institutional factors to stimulate entrepreneurship.
Keywords: Economic factors, institutional factors, demand-side perspective, supply-side perspective, culture, political stability
